Mouser Electronics has signed a global agreement with Brainboxes to distribute the company's data and IO connectivity products. UK-based Brainboxes develops, manufactures and supports its own core technologies, including Ethernet, USB, Bluetooth, PCI Express and PCI products.

The Brainboxes product line available from Mouser Electronics through its global agreement includes the BB-400 NeuronEdge industrial controller. The BB-400 combines Brainboxes' proven IO and serial connectivity with a range of network connections to allow data to flow to the application of choice.

The design uses an Industrialised Raspberry Pi and Arduino to provide edge processing coupled with Brainboxes industrial hardware, creating an ideal solution for industrial monitoring and IIoT applications.

Mouser is also now stocking Brainboxes Ethernet remote IO products, available as either Ethernet-to-digital or Ethernet-to-analogue IO devices.

The devices provide a wide variety of functionality that enable the automation of a very broad range of tasks in process control, data collection, food preparation, packaging, warehousing, and industrial manufacturing by connecting "real world" field devices over Ethernet to a controller PC.

Brainboxes industrial Ethernet switches are unmanaged Ethernet switches that provide up to eight Fast Ethernet ports with no software required.

Offered in Industrial, Industrial Hardened, and Industrial Embeddable configurations, these plug-and-play devices are 5 V to 30 V dual redundant power input capable, meaning they can be powered from USB, or from the 24 V factory floor.

Mouser offers a variety of Brainboxes USB-to-serial and Ethernet-to-serial devices for industrial control.

The USB-to-serial devices provide up to eight RS232 or RS422/RS485 ports, and offer baud rates up to 921600.

The Ethernet-to-serial devices are available in several variants and offer baud rates up to 230400.

With its Industrial Internet of Things, serial and remote IO technology, Brainboxes can supply customers seeking mission-critical industrial automation and test and measurement solutions.

As an authorised distributor, Mouser Electronics is focused on the rapid introduction of new products and technologies, giving customers an edge and helping speed time to market.
